Why We Do It

Meaningful Purpose

We truly make a difference in the lives of others. Diligently and compassionately, we work to improve the quality of life for individuals who, in turn, inspire us to be better people. This gives us purpose – more so than any other job we’ve had.

Lasting Bonds

Our relationships are deep and lasting. We go through a lot together. Coworkers and the people we serve feel like a second family. We lean on each other to get through the ups and downs of the day, and the people we serve are our reasons for being here.
